In the past few weeks we have featured several recently introduced varieties of tequila and vodka but the new Acai Veev is something completely new. The Acai Veev is a unique type of liquor that uses the Acai fruit from Brazil in addition to acerola cherries and prickly pears to create a truly unique experience. The Acai fruit is the Brazilian national fruit and is thought by many to be the healthiest fruit on the planet due to the fact that it is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins C and E, protein and Fiber while also producing a drink that is supposedly a little sweeter that a traditional vodka. In addition to a unique blend of flavors, for every bottle purchased $1 goes to various environmentalist foundations such as the Rainforest Action Network and Sambazon’s Sustainable Acai Project.

While there is no shortage of shower heads that perform various insane antics such as power massage or weird pulsing jets the Cloud Cover Shower Head provides a very unique experience. The Cloud Cover Shower Head designed by Rogerseller is flush mounted in the ceiling and uses several small jets firing straight down to provide a similar experience to showering in the rain. The shower head itself is a large square measuring 11 inches x 11inches and not only looks amazing but also has low water consumption so its good for the environment as well.

Now at first glance this product looks like something straight out a torture chamber, but in reality this is the new Saeco Etienne Louis Espresso Coffee Machine. It was created by Swiss designer Carlo Borer and it is a premium espresso machine with a very contemporary design. The sphere of the Espresso maker is made of steel and is split in half with the upper half of the sphere hiding a removable water tanks while the lower half is the brewing mechanics. The supports and spikes themselves are made out of a polished aluminum and in addition to the large steel sphere is gives the espresso machine an extremely unique look.

While remotes controls are hardly the most interesting products in your home this new universal remote is very unique and has an extremely innovative form. The remote itself follows a clamshell design similar to cell phones and has even been been nominated as one of the 2007 Innovations Honoree in the Video Accessories category for the 2007 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards earlier this year. The new universal remote is made by Jasco and is designed to be a space saver as it is able to fold into half, giving it a much smaller profile than most other universal remotes. This new remote control is not packed with technology (such as a LCD screen) but does however perform all the basic functions of any universal remote such as controlling several devices with only a single remote, as well adding in a few more interesting features. One of these features is a curved shape allowing for a comfortable feel in your hand as well as a sleep timer and a navigation wheel to quickly control volume, channels and menus. The best part is that when it hits production it will be extremely affordable coming in at a estimated price of $18.99 each

While this might not be the most innovative product on the market, it is ironically one of my favorites. This product is a floating drink/serving tray that can be be controlled via remote control to bring drinks and snacks to the lazy people floating in the pool. Supposedly the tray is also incredible stable in the water to ensure that everything stays clear of the water. The remote-controlled serving tray has a range of about 25 ft (limited by the range of the remote control) and uses a small propeller to power the vessel. This allows the floating tray to move in every direction as well as the ability to rotate a full 360 degrees with the touch of a button. The tray has space for five of your favorite beverages as well as a bowl that holds 16oz of snacks and will set you back only $49.99Идея за подаръкikoni
